a musical meme

(aj, you’d BETTER answer this shit)

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
So, here’s how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool…

Opening Credits:

owusu & hannibal, “upstairs downstairs”
word.

Waking Up:
mos def, “mr. nigga”
um, yeah. i guess that’ll work.

First Day At School:
hope, “bring me flowers”
errrrm . . . aight.

Falling In Love:
outkast, “millenium”
me & everything around me/ is unstable like chernobyl . . . yeah.

Fight Song:
kissey asplund, “with you”
makes NO sense whatsoever.

Breaking Up:
muhsinah, “reconstruct”
YES. finally something that makes sense.

Prom:
j*davey, “valley of love”
if i graduated in 1988 and not 1998 maybe it’d fit.

Life:
cee-lo, “bass head jazz”
my life is never this chill. ever. but maybe that’s what i’m headed into?

Mental Breakdown:
bilal, “slyde”
of course it’d be a bilal song. insert ignorant gossipy remark here.

Driving:
the roots, “the lesson pt. 1”
it fits. whaddaya know?

Flashback:
andre 3000, “chronomentrophobia”
the fear of clocks/ the fear of time. yeah. kinda works.

Getting Back Together:
the roots, “the next movement”
the title works. the song itself doesn’t, unless i’m cutting a rug w/ said former boo to this song. and i doubt i would be.

Wedding:
muhsinah, “gogh”
the refrain says “let’s go again” so maybe this works? am i even getting married?

Birth of Child:
candido, “serenade to a savage”
hey, nobody said it was the birth of MY child!

Final Battle:
esperanza spalding, “ponta de areia”
makes.zero.sense.

Death Scene:
res, “how i do”
this shit has zero rhyme or reason, but it totally fits.

Funeral Song:
dwele, “blow your mind”
well, i always did say i wanted motherfuckers to celebrate @ my “homegoing” service.

End Credits:
outkast, “so fresh, so clean”
fuck and yes.
